Jon Wyatt Photography - The Low Lighthouse on the beach at Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset
The Low Lighthouse, Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset. Built in 1832, the lighthouse is still operating, warning shipping of the racing tides and dangerous mudflats. Behind the lighthouse a hardy bush alien to the area – Sea Buckthorn – was introduced in the 1890’s in an effort to stabilise the sand dunes here. However its proliferation has led to the smothering of the species-rich habitat.
